The Gwen Cherry Bulls won the Pop Warner National Super Bowl Championship in Orlando, FL this past weekend in a victory against the Virginia Beach Mustangs. The Bulls, competing in the Division I Pee Wee division, won the championship game with a score of 30 – 0. The bulls head coach Jovan Ferguson captured his second national championship.
The mustangs coaching staff learned three things quickly once the whistle blew -- one, the bulls were loaded top to bottom with athletes and two, they didn't shy away from contact and three, they're well coached.
The bulls offensive line don't receive much credit, due to the incredible athletes on their roster, but these five young man has done an excellent job this season. Shoot-out to the offensive line coach Deandre Francis (pictured) and the real MVP's of the team left to right (Pictured):

Courtesy of the five young man pictured above. Running backs Rance Conner, Robert McMann, Deandre Francis, Malik Rutherford and wild-cat quarterback Keith Moore would ran wild versus the mustangs defense.
The first score TOUCHDOWN of the game would come from 6-yards out, as running back Deandre Francis would make crisp giving his team the lead.
The next "big play" of the game would occur on defense. As the bulls defensive end (#15) Lionel Whittaker -- would use his tall stature and intercept the mustangs quarterback pass and returned it 21 - yards -- setting his offense up in great field position.
A few good runs by Francis, Conner and McMann would place the ball inside the mustangs red zond att the 1-yard line. The bulls quarterback QB Taverres Blackmon -- would call his own number on a 1-yard QB sneak for a TOUCHDOWN.
The bulls next two TOUCHDOWNS on offense would come from athlete Malik Rutherford. He would scored twice carrying the ball from 5 and 38 yards, to put the game away.
Wild-cat quarterback Keith Moore late in the second half -- would light up the scoreboard once again, on a 3-yard design QB keeper for a TOUCHDOWN. On defense, cornerback Jerrod Cameron would catch an interception, ruining their chances of any late come back hopes.
The bulls defensive standouts were Rance Conner, Gabriel Myrthil, Lionel Whittaker, Michael Sherill, Jordan Burns and Jerrod Cameron. Congratulations to the Gwen Cherry Bulls on becoming the first program in the Greater Miami Pop Warner Conference history, to capture two National Titles in the same season.
